The way I see it, this is business as usual at the LMA.
Did you really think it was better before? Seriously.

Ah--my point exactly...two or three yrs ago not much happened here as often as it does now (the good stuff, info exchanges, etc). Sure, there is also more bad stuff, but it is easier and easier to ignore...

Kman, seriously, I understand you've been hurt, offended, maybe even "legally wronged" in some sense, BUT, as I said before, does it really accomplish anything to spend all your time here lamenting it? Much less violating the official rules of the board by returning the favor? You really cannot hide behind "I am only doing what was done to me!"....did CLIFF post your ISPs? You do know this board does not allow that anymore than spam, right?

But, the real trouble is it actually makes you look pathetic--I know that sounds harsh, but if you really had a site that occupied your time, if you really enjoyed it and wanted any of "us" to come over, you'd be there too busy to even respond to something along these lines...

Really, you would.

The posts have always been very informative on this site. It is a place I come to every day, even if I post way less than say two years ago. Lives change, Jobs change, free time to speak about your favorite band changes... I think for folks like Liam who have been around these parts for many years the posts can start to look unfamiler and even unfriendly at times. You are right that the knowledge keeps getting better and so the posts are filled with great insights - With more folks chiming in the little theatre we once filled with friends has now become a stadium filled with people we hardly recognize. Stilll the music sounds just as good, only you have to work a little harder to find a good seat... happy new year and this Capt. will surely keep on truckin'...

It's for sure that it looks unfriendly at times now...And I can appreciate that it's tougher for folks to find a good seat (good one), but I just don't think it's "worse" as some--many even?--have implied.

As evidence, I could go and get my old posts, but that would take too long, and it's really not worth it, so I'll just note that in the months of Dec and Jan (06-07), I and a few others here "quit" the site repeatedly over misbehavior, trolling, etc., etc., etc.

I guess my point is that the site has ALWAYS had problems, and will continue to do so (no doubt), and thus it's always been and always will be "take the good from what you can, and ignore the rest"...

Have a good one CC! Always recall you as one of the good guys...

Pass judgment on me all you like, I am just trying to get Dennis to stop his BS.
